"The 2017 Chardonnay (Santa Cruz Mountains) is a blend of the Alpine and Horseshoe vineyards. Brisk and nuanced, with tremendous energy as well as personality, the Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay is another fabulous wine in the Alesia range. Citrus, floral and mineral notes are beautifully delineated in a Chardonnay that is both vibrant, but also accessible and easy to enjoy young."
